Have no lesions, however, due to the nature of this thing (or should I say , un-natural-ness..) I am taking certain precautions. One is that I nolonger hold my cats who nolonger live with me. I go to see them and cautiously touch them as little as possible or with gloves. I take them goodies which they look forward to!Like tuna fish which is opened for them! : ) Appreciate the reply from both of you, thank you.
It is my goal to understand epidemiology so that hopefully there will be clarity in this realm of the issue.
Debra and G, I've had this for over 4 yrs. Another individual lived in the house and my 2 labradors. The other individual did NOT get this, but one lab did and died from it. With that being said, I KNOW my lab that died had an immune problem and she loved to lick me (before I knew what I had). My other lab does not have this at this time. I believe that it can be passed on to others if they have an immune system problem or come into direct contact with a leision. I refrain from any direct contact with individuals and keep most of the leisions covered. So far, no one else I know of has contracted this from me. Be cautious!
